My First Wedding

Well, not *my* wedding. I’m talking about the first wedding that I officiated as a pastor. It was exactly one week ago. I was pretty nervous, but God knew what I could handle and gave me a pretty low key wedding to officiate. I’m thankful that I stepped out of my comfort zone and did it. I’m also thankful for those pastors who gave great advice and for everyone who prayed for me.

Last Saturday, I was giving up to the minute updates via Twitter. I thought it would be interesting to post those updates here. If you follow me on Twitter, you’ve seen these updates already. If not, here they are. In true Twitter fashion, start from the bottom of the post and work your way back up.
